Bobby Herrington comes to Brook Hill as the Director of Security and Campus Safety. Bobby grew up in Tyler where he met his wife, Jill, during his time in the military. After serving in the US Army Airborne Infantry, Bobby returned to East Texas to attend TJC and become a first responder, serving 10 years on paramedic and ambulance teams. For 4 years, he served as an instructor in the TJC paramedic program to help equip the next generation. After 14 years in the construction and home improvement industry, Bobby served 10 years on staff with Marvin Methodist Church as Director of Operations and Safety.
Bobby is a licensed Level IV Security Officer for the state of Texas and takes the safety of students very seriously.
Bobby enjoys spending time with his wife, 3 children, and 4 grandchildren (with 2 still in the oven). He has coached both baseball and basketball in the past, and looks forward to cheering on the Guard teams. Bobby has a passion for mentoring young people and is thrilled to serve on a campus where the Lord is glorified daily.
Bobby and Jill have been married for 32 years and reside in Arp on a farm that has been in the family for over 100 years. In his free time, Bobby enjoys farming, fishing, and hunting, as well as cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bobby is well aware that God is the true protector of the Brook Hill campus. For this reason, Bobby has chosen Psalm 18:2 to pray over the students each day:
“The Lord is my protector; He is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with Him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; He defends me and keeps me safe.”
“I thank God for giving me the opportunity to become a member of the Brook Hill family”. Go Guard!
